“We are proud to offer Road Ready advanced trailer telematics as a factory-installed option on our tank truck trailers,” said Jim Maiorana, co-owner and president, MAC LTT. “We believe the Road Ready technology will bring value to our customers by giving them access to comprehensive and accurate information about their trailers. This will enable them to make better decisions, increase productivity and enhance customer satisfaction.”
Matt Niemeier, vice president of sales, MAC LTT, added, “We know smart trailer technology is coming and need to adapt to the changes our industry is seeing. A telematics solution like Road Ready is a great way to start. We look forward to the feedback and dialog this week at NTTC Tank Truck Week.”
Road Ready advanced trailer telematics solutions require the installation of a proprietary telematics device named the Road Ready Master Control Unit. Customers can take advantage of a variety of location-based safety and tracking features of the Road Ready advanced telematics system. Fleets can customize how often each fleet asset communicates its location status. Fleets can also set up custom landmarks to create geofences for established routes, triggering alerts to help fleets protect their assets and their customer’s cargo.
Customers can work with their Road Ready sales representative to configure their solution to the exact needs of their fleet, selecting from a list of features that leverage either Road Ready sensors and devices, or those devices from the Road Ready LogIQ smart trailer partners that monitor critical aspects of the trailer including cargo temperature, weight, tire pressure and wheel-end health, and more.
Additionally, all Road Ready telematics solutions are now Powered by Fus1on, a modern and powerful cloud-based IoT platform from Clarience Technologies that integrates data from multiple sources and provides actionable insights to fleet managers and drivers. With Fus1on, Road Ready telematics will adapt as a fleet, or the industry, changes over time.
